Writing this post from the waiting area in the Victoria airport. Anothe sunny calm morning – I’m going to miss these excellent mornings…

This was a great trip. Great sites, super adventures and really, really relaxing. Vancouver Island has a lot to offer, and the laid back attitude is a very important part of life here. We’re going to do everything we can to bring this attitude back to Regina. We’ve been blessed with very livable cities here – cities that remain about people rather than cars. I’m ready to recommit to moving Regina further in this direction – whether that’s local markets, bike lanes, or better public transportation. I don’t want to move, but I don’t want to have to drive everywhere either.

Let’s see how this new mood holds up when I go to work tomorrow…

The Best Game You Can Name

July 7, 2007

We’ve been out of ‘net coverage for a while now – camping at French Beach and checking out the beaches and marine life at Botany Bay, Botanical Beach and China Beach. But today we’re back in Victoria and that can only mean one thing…

SOCCER!!

Only 4 hours till kickoff of today’s U20 world cup matches. I’m extremely excited.

We’ve heard lots of horror stories about secutiry – long lines, no food or drink allowed in , no re-entry (and we’ll be there for 5-6 hours). But, we’re bringing lots of cash and sun hats. It was good to have the notice though- there was nothing in the tickets that mentioned this. Oh well.

Full report to follow!
